Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy


The Freedom of Information Coordinator for the City of Cornwall  responds to all Municipal Freedom of Information requests made under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The Act applies to all Ontario municipalities, including the City of Cornwall and its boards and commissions.

The Coordinator ensures that each request follows the appropriate processes, meets all deadlines and notification processes as outlined in the Act.

The Act provides individuals the right of access to both general information and their own personal information maintained by the City of Cornwall. The Act also provides for the protection of personal information that has been collected by the City of Cornwall.

The Act also describes very limited and specific circumstances where information may need to be withheld from release.
